Stoke City vs. West Ham Will Now Kick-Off At 4pm

Stoke City vs West Ham will now be played at 4pm after the game was delayed due to a major power outage.

According to the club's official Twitter page, a power surge has affected both club generators and the mains supply, which meant home and away supporters were standing outside of the bet365 Stadiumn after the original kick-off time of 3pm.
